What is HydroPeptide?
HydroPeptide® is Scientific Beauty Made Simple. Created by a team of dermatologists, chemists, nutritionists, estheticians, and wellness experts who wanted to maximize results in as little steps (and with as little money) as possible. HydroPeptide® incorporates the most advanced science including 21 peptides, growth factors, colostrum, and alpha hydroxy acids with the purest extracts derived from nature and addresses every aspect of anti-aging with the Simply Ageless Skin Key.
What is a peptide?
Peptides are used within every HydroPeptide® product, with the exception of HydroPeptide® SPF 30, and for great reason. They are the miracle behind HydroPeptide®. Peptides are basically tiny protein fragments (or small chains of amino acids) that increase cellular communication within the skin. Various types of peptides exist with various functions. Peptides help promote natural elements of healthy skin including collagen production (which helps plump the skin), and neuropeptides helps relax repetitive facial muscle contractions (which softens wrinkles). HydroPeptide® uses 16 performance-based, medical-grade peptides within their products.
When will I begin to see results?
Peptides go to work immediately within the skin, but their results are not seen until after the collagen has a chance to plump and thicken the under layers of skin. This process may take 28 days (for younger skin) and up to 56 days (for older skin). While you'll see immediate changes in texture and tone, give HydroPeptide® a good evaluation with three months of continued regular use. During the clinical trials improvement continued beyond an 84 day period.
Are the results permanent? Or will my wrinkles return if I stop using HydroPepitde?
While clinical trials suggest that HydroPeptide®'s effects last much longer than competitive products, no skin cream can claim to cause permanent improvement. Every day, your skin is bombarded by external factors such as wind, harsh weather, UV sun rays and more can damage it and return it to its starting state. HydroPeptide® researchers recommend that you continue to follow a regular and healthy skin care regimen to maintain younger-looking skin. Further studies suggest that by using the combination of antioxidants found in HydroPeptide® may help reverse skin aging while helping prevent future wrinkles formation.
Can HydroPeptide® be used to help prevent wrinkles from forming?
Yes. HydroPeptide® was designed for people of all skin types and all skin concerns, including providing a preventative treatment for people who have yet to develop fine lines and wrinkles. HydroPeptide®'s proprietary blend of antioxidants will help fight against the damaging effects of free radicals, and restore any damage that has already been done to your skin. Adding HydroPeptide® to your morning and evening beauty routine significantly improves your skin, so it's perfect for any age! It will even help reduce the appearance of acne scars. HydroPeptide® will not cause the skin to feel greasy, sticky, heavy or oily.
Why are antioxidants important in skin care?
In the natural aging process, oxidative stress occurs at a rate at which the body or skin is no longer able to fully neutralize free radicals. Free radicals accelerate the cellular damage known to cause premature aging. Antioxidants have the ability to pair with an unstable electron and reduce cell death. There are actually six categories of free radicals that attack the skin every day. One powerful antioxidant alone cannot stand up to all of them. HydroPeptide® contains a variety of natural and organic antioxidants that provide a broad range of protection to fight all six categories of free radicals.
Will HydroPeptide® cause redness or irritation?
You should always consult your dermatologist before starting any new skin care regimen. All HydroPeptide® products are dermatologist tested and have undergone extensive research, including a repeat insult patch test (RIPT) which ensures the products are non-irritating. Consumers have not reported any adverse effects from HydroPeptide®, however you should immediately discontinue use if any irritation or redness occurs.
Can I use HydroPeptide® if I have had a cosmetic injection or cosmetic surgery?
Yes. In fact many of our customers have reported that HydroPeptide® actually increased the life of their cosmetic injections, and their skin felt and looked healthier than before. It is recommended as a pre- and postoperative care regimen.
Can I use the HydroPeptide® collection with other skin care products?
The HydroPeptide® collection has been designed to meet all your anti-aging needs so if possible use products from the line. If you choose to incorporate other products, we suggest testing any combination of skin care products on the inside of your forearm before applying it to your face to check for irritation. The basic rule of thumb, is to apply all your serums first (to clean skin) and then your creams. For prescription skin-care products, consult your physician.
Can HydroPeptide" help with acne scars and other types of scaring?
Yes. Although HydroPeptide® was specifically formulated for fine lines and wrinkles (indentations in the skin which are scars after all), many HydroPeptide® users have reported improvement in acne scars, burn scars, chicken pox marks, scars from old injuries, and even stretch marks.
Why does HydroPeptide® SPF 30 not contain any peptides in its formula?
Peptides are ingredients designed to absorb within the skin whereas sunscreen is designed to refract UV rays from the skins suface. If HydroPeptide® SPF contained peptides, the peptides would not absorb and you would be paying for an expensive product that would not perform effectively. Although HydroPeptide® SPF does not contain any peptides, it is an excellent sunscreen that helps clear blemishes and imperfections, reduce free radical damage and enhances your natural skin tone with color-adjusting spheres.
Does HydroPeptide® work on all colors of skin?
Yes. HydroPeptide® has been designed for all skin types, all ages, and all conditions.
